What's the best way to the camera move and zoom in to 80 images in different positions?
on Dec 5, 2018 at 6:04:06 pm

I have 80 images scattered in a 2D scene and I wanted the camera to move and zoom in on each of those pictures every 2 seconds.

What's the best way to do this?

Parent all your pictures to a null. Then animate the null's position, rotation and scale to taste.

No, select all the pics -- arranged the way they are -- then take the pick-whip of one and parent it to the null. The rest follow suit. Pretty easy.

You should check out Video Copilot's Sure Target plugin/preset. It may give you some automation and some realistic bounciness/easiness. But it comes with the hassle of setting it up. But maybe copying/pasting your photo's position/rotation to a camera thats parented to a null would be a lot faster.

[Cassius Marques] "You should check out Video Copilot's Sure Target plugin/preset."

I would second Cassius on that.

Make initial keyframes..then parent your camera to 1 image then zero out the anchor point and then just zoom in...set keyframes..then zoom back out and then parent the cameras to the 2nd image,,set key frames...zoom out.and repeat 80 more times

Does this plugin still work? I LOVED SureTarget, but one of the CC releases broke it, so unless there's been an update...

Tank you a lot Cassius Marques, you just saved me.
The Video Copilot's Sure Target plugin worked very fine and it was very simple and practical!
Without this plugin, I couldn't finish on time.
The only problem that i had was the rendering time, i think that could be improved if set the pictures that aren't in the scene invisible.
